[Photoset: images of four male superheroes in redesigned revealing costumes. The first is Batman, in boots, panties attached to some sort of weird V-shaped strip of cloth baring most of his torso, a shoulder-piece with the Bat symbol across his collarbones, gloves, a cape, and the cowl, with accompanying text “This is very practical. It helps him fight crime. No Really!” The second is Superman, in that bizarre massively-twisted pose designed to show off female characters’ breasts and bottoms, wearing a midriff-baring cropped top, panties, garters(?), boots, and a cape, with accompanying text “Who needs spines anyway? Not Superman.” The third is Captain America, in cowl, sleeveless top with a star-shaped cutout loosely connected to shorts by strips of red fabric, and boots, balancing awkwardly on one foot and holding his shield over his head, with accompanying text “Impractical fighting pose and cleavage window? What could go wrong?” The last is Spider-Man, wearing boots, knee-high stockings, some sort of torso-baring leotard connecting to a mask and with elbow-length sleevelike things mostly made of straps, and gloves, with accompanying text “It counts as clothing if it’s painted on, right?”]

Welcome to: If Male Superhero Costumes were Designed Like Female Superhero Costumes!

Aaaaa I dunno. I got tired of guys having no idea why girls find female superhero’s costumes kinda sexist, so I, um, made this?

My main goals were: 1) Make it so the first thing you think of when you look at them is sex, whether you want to or not. 2) make it so that any male human who looks at this feels really uncomfortable. 3) make it funny, because, well, it’s kinda hilarious really.

Not trying to start a war here, just wanted to poke a bit of fun.

So, here you go menfolk, welcome to being a girl who likes comics.

I think both of these are relevant yeah

Gosh, that Spidey design looks kinda familiar. What does it remind me of?

Oh yeah, that old What If issue with Betty Brant as Spider-Girl!

Kinda lends itself to the artist’s point, doesn’t it.
